"Downtown Abbey" star Joanne Froggatt won the Golden Globe Award for the best Supporting Actress in TV series, beating the likes of Kathy Bates, Uzo Aduba, Michelle Monaghan and Allison Janney. However, Froggatt was totally shocked with her win as she did not expect it coming her way.
"This is the most shocking moment of my life. "This is a dream come true," Froggatt said post the honours as per Eonline.
The actress showed her acting chops in the fourth season of the series, in which she had to perform a heart-wrenching scene where a visiting valet molests her character. Interestingly, after the scene got aired, Froggat got appreciation letters from a slew of women fans.
Other actress, who unexpectedly walked away with the Golden Globes trophy includes "Jane the Virgin" star Gina Rodriguez, who won the Best Actress in the Comedy series.
"Wow. Thank you god for making me an artist. Thank you to my entire cast. I am nothing without you. Thank you to my mom and my dad who tell me to dream big and never stop dreaming. Thank you to my sisters and my siblings...for being the biggest role models," she said in an emotional speech, reported the Website.
Rodriguez was pitched against Edie Falco and Julia Louis-Dreyfus for the award.
As far as the winner in Best Comedy Series category is concerned, Amazon's "Transparent" took the cake. It beat out "Silicon Valley," "Girls," "Orange Is the New Black "and "Jane the Virgin." The show revolves around the sensitive topic of transgenders. Once again "Transparent" win came as a shock as "OITNB" team was expecting to win the honours this year.
"I want to thank the trans community. They are our family, they make it possible," show creator Jill Soloway said after winning the trophy reported the Website
